Entity Developer is a powerful modeling and code generation tool for ADO.NET Entity Framework, NHibernate, and LINQ to SQL. You can use Model-First and Database-First approaches to design your model and generate C# or Visual Basic .NET code for it. It introduces new approaches for designing ORM models, boosts productivity, and facilitates the development of database applications.
Visual ORM Model Designer with Code Generation
Entity Developer allows you to create and edit Entity Framework, NHibernate, and LINQ to SQL models visually, without typing a line of XML code. It supports editing storage part in GUI and creating all kinds of mapping, such as table splitting, mapping entity to several tables, complex types, inheritance hierarchies, creating entities from SELECT statements and methods from SQL code, etc. Code generation is very flexible due to using T4-like templates.
